District by Teknion echoes the work of mid-century modernists who designed office furniture with characteristically low, horizontal lines. The elegant architectural furniture of this period had a remarkable transparency achieved by elevated cabinets, overlapping surfaces and a refined scale. District uses and reinterprets these elements for the modern office.
District is also influenced by modern European residential furniture, characterized by a light, floating presence and compact dimensions. The use of natural veneers, glass, painted wood construction and anodized aluminum reflect these inspirations and brings the look and feel of furniture to the open plan.
